95.9 FM (WRED), Portland's hip-hop station, is going off the air. The station serves as something of "a main artery for a lot of hip-hop fans," according to local hip-hop artist Sontiago. Beginning on September 1, the station's hip-hop beats (sorry, I mean "rhythmic top 40") will be replaced by sports programming from Boston's popular WEEI, which will also broadcast on 95.5 FM (WJJB). That station's programming (JJB's that is) will jump to 96.3 (WLOB), Southern Maine's news/talk radio station. In turn, WLOB's programs will only be heard at its AM dial position -- 1310 AM -- and, in the case of the WLOB FOX Morning News show, on FOX 23 TV.
